Unreliable as a beer.

You can buy this beer, either great, too sugary, flat, skunked etc etc... Is it the clear bottle?? or just the mass production of this beer??

A: great color, most of the time.

S: smells brown sugary most of the time.

T: could be too sugary, but when you get a good one it is pretty good, nice and slightly sugary, malty taste to it.

M: light carb, sugary feel.

O: thought it was better a few years back. Not sure why it has quality control issues, except for the clear bottle... Sometimes good, sometimes bad, if it is on sale at the local grocery I'd still pick up a few for BBQ's though.

From can. A bit of a malty hay aroma. Pours a reddish brown with off-white head. Light sweet taste. Medium body, with average carbonation and a mild bitter finish.
